Headphones for running

Postby handstand79 » 15 Apr 2014, 20:47

Well you lovely ladies have inspired me to give the C25K app a go. I went and got trainers at a local shop today. Had me running on a treadmill and videoing me the playing back in slow motion! Very clever! Spent my birthday money on them instead of a day at Betty's cookery school. Telling myself the trainers will be much more useful in getting this weight off rather than learning how to make lovely tea time treats :/ Got a case to put my iPhone in and some leggings and a top but need some headphones to hear the podcast. Has anyone got any recommendations for headphones while running? Can't wait to get going!

Mine always fall out - my most recent solution is wearing a stretchy headband over my ears to keep normal earbuds in. Work much better than sports headphones i've tried!

I like thrones that came with my iPod. First ones to fit in my oddly shaped ears.

DH has some sennheiser (sp?) sports ones that hook over the ear - I like 'em.

I have these too, and love them, they are the first ones that don't move around when I'm running. These are the ones I have:

Yay, well done hs. I'm too scared to go into one of those shops, I've never run on a treadmill and I'm worried I'd fall off! Then have to watch it back in slow motion.

I have earphones with a bit that hooks round your ear, a bit like this http://www.amazon.co.uk/Haeb75s-Sports- ... +earphones

They seem to do the job.

I have got some yurbuds, specially shaped for people who exercise. They are abit expensive but mean I can do interval running flat out with out the worry of them falling out. I managed to get some of ebay for £12, from Hong Kong

Second yurbuds. Everything else is hopeless for me. The hooked ones are too big.

I have these too, they are great and don't move about at all.

Thank you very much! DH spotting me browsing amazon and asked why. I didn't realise he had three pairs of bud ones so I'm going to give those a go first and see how I get on then look into others if I need to. Bought a stretchy headband! Going for the first run tonight once the boys are asleep!
